The Indian night was very well attended and we thank you for the nice comments. We do plan to repeat the evening but note that next time more space is required in the main restaurant along with service rather than a buffet. Watch this space……
MS Information Evening at Orsett Hall
Thank you to all the 240 people! who attended the meeting. The speakers- Professor Giovonnoni, Professor Gold , Professor Smith and Dr Jeremy Chataway all gave warmly received and informative talks and held an ‘open discussion’ which has resulted in several patients being referred for possible entry into clinical trials. Lots of your thoughts and positive comments have been received via our evaluation sheets. Another meeting is planned for early spring. Details will be announced here so read your newsletter!
***Please note ***

Fact: Regular exercise, by building strength and stamina, prevents loss of bone mass and improves balance, actually reducing your risk of falling.
Screw up a sheet of wrapping paper and put it on the floor.
With bare feet push the ball from one foot to the other.
Try to pick up a small ball of paper with your toes, drop and repeat.
Now place the large ball between your feet. Pick up the ball by pressing a foot either side and lifting as high as you can. Repeat.
Finally, Have a wonderful Christmas! From all the M.S.T.G team!
